Anna Lee, the current COO at online fashion and lifestyle marketplace The Iconic, is leaving to head up Australian customer-loyalty program company Flybuys.
Lee will succeed current CEO, John Merakovsky, who will depart in April. Lana Hudson, Flybuys’ CFO, will hold the interim CEO role before Lee begins working on June 13.
“Flybuys has an exciting growth trajectory and I’m pleased to be handing the reigns to a leader of Anna’s calibre,” Merakovsky said.
Having worked at The Iconic, one of ANZ’s leading online fashion and lifestyle retailers, since 2014 as CFO, acting CEO and currently COO, Lee oversees teams across different sectors, including finance, supply chain, operations and technology change programs.
Besides The Iconic, Lee also held leadership positions at the National Online Retailers Association, Groupon and PWC.
“She has exceptional e-commerce, operations and financial experience in high growth retail environments and a wealth of deep digital experience across omnichannel portfolios,” said Steven Cain, chairman of Flybuys, and Coles Group CEO.
“Anna will ensure our millions of members are at the heart of Flybuys’ business proposition.”
